Instructions for making daffodils for cupcake liners
1. Unfold and flatten your yellow cupcake liners. Use scissors to cut six slits around the circumference of each cupcake liner to create the daffodils. Make sure you stop each cut as they reach the inner circle of the cupcake liners.
2. Cut a stem for each of your flowers from a piece of green cardstock.
3. Make a crease on your green cardboard to cut your floral leaves. Then cut off the leaf shape in half along the folded edge. Open the paper to reveal your daffodil leaf. Cut two leaves for each flower.
4. Add glue to the circle on the back of each yellow cupcake liners and glue them onto the light blue piece of cardboard, nearly one-third of the top of the paper.
5. Glue the flower stalks and leaves onto the flower.
When we glued on our leaves, we added a line of glue directly down the middle and glued them onto our flower without pressing the sides of the leaves down. This helps to leave a fun 3-D look with the leaves bouncing off the page.
6. Flip each small yellow or orange cupcake liners inside out to use them for the flower in the center. Add glue in between the daffodils and glue mini cupcake liners in between the flowers.
7. Use a strong adhesive or glue stick to glue three small yellow cotton balls to the inside of each of your daffodils.
